Blessings Promised for Obedience

Promises are beautiful things we can hold on to. We , as human make so many promises but most of the time , we are not able to make them true. It is alright. That’s make us human. Personally If I promise someone , I make sure I stay 100% till end, and give away my best to make it happen. I do not know you, but I am really love to be a kind of friend that will be counted. Why promises are important? Why do we need them? How can I be sure I can live in that promises ? Or what God promised to me? There are so many questions you can ask. But , in this moment I am here to encourage you that ” Blessings ” promises for you , if you obey! If you listen what God says to you. You know there is always if. A father promised to his child IF you be a good buy I am going to by this bike for you. It’s not entirely like that. But our heavenly Father loves us, in the same way we need to love him and this seeks obedience. If we can not obey well, we are going to miss the point and end up with a wrong direction.

Listen to this what God promises to us :

I am giving you a promise now while the seed is still in the barn.You have not yet harvested your grain, and your grapevines, fig trees, pomegranates, and olive trees have not yet produced their crops. But from this day onward I will bless you.”( Haggai 2 : 19 NLT)

 

Our good shepherded promises blessing in our life. In the time of dryness and wilderness. May you are struggling to find a right job . But God promises is bless you even you do not have a job. May you are struggling with a not a good relationship but God promises is to bless you in that situation. Think about that , How his promises change your life? never ever underestimate God’s promises in your life , they are blessing you in every direction.

“God never made a promise that was too good to be true.”
Dwight L. Moody

Obey and see the fruit of it. Let our life shine in every area. From school to our job place. From talking to a friend to talking to a boss. We can be better , we can change the world around us by holding to the promises of God and obeying what he says about us is truth. Enemy hates his promises. The plan and purpose of living God is good indeed. God never took eyes off of you. He is look after you , here and there. Where ever we are he went and prepared us his blessings behind blessings for us. This blessings is not only within us and for us, also it is for others around us too. They will see how blessed you are. How youthful and beautiful you are, your smile , your love and you are act of kindness all together impacts them positively. An unbelievable energy with us – which from above not the world. From the Holy Spirit within you. You are a light. You are a blessing.

Let this be your declaration:

I am blessed , I am loved

Because I have a good Father, because I obey his love

I am blessed , I am strong

Because I have a good Father, because I obey his spirit

I am blessed , I am called

Because I have a good Father , Whom promised me is with me

I am blessed , I am beautiful

Because I have a good Father , whom I follow

 

Promise of God is a new season for you now. Enjoy the blessing!

Much love

I want to know Christ.

I want to know Christ–yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death. ( Philippians 3 : 10 ).

I want to know Him. I want to become like Him in anything. Here Paul saying i preferred to loos anything and gain the Christ. I want to know who He is. I want to know who he is which really changed me inside out. I’ve never had this experience before. It  seemed impossible for me to change .My eyes was closed ,  to regulations and the law surrendered me. I was seeing the things through the lanes of this world not Him. I want to know that person which shifted my prospective.

By knowing Christ , your prospective , your inner being will be shaped in a positive way . Somehow you will be a new creation . I want to know Him because He lift me up and will show me who I am in Him.

The power of His resurrection somehow will resurrect me from my death. The power of His resurrection will make me alive. The power of His resurrection will heal me . I gain eternal life ,  I pass a face of shame and condemnation to reach His glory . I’ll be like Him.

Paul is saying because he was longing to know Christ. He was longing to become a person like His master. Who is your master today? . The master I am introducing is not from this world although He came and died for me and you, but He overcame the world. Yes , this is the beginning of our journey. The journey is the destination and the process is the goal.

Sometimes we need to be like a baby to know Him

I wan to know Him , whom loved me and loving and caring me everyday . His hands are powerful and His mighty power above all. Can you tell Him today from your heart , that I want to know you Jesus?.

Pauls is writing to Philippians church , a church which he established in His second missionary  journey (52AD). Remember God sent Paul by a vision to Philippi. So this city needed to know Christ. The Sin has broken our relationship with our creator , that’s why God sent His only son to heal this and to offer us eternal life. Now we have chance to know Him. Now we have this opportunity to open door for Him to coming in our hearts. Jesus says I sand behind the door and knock whoever open the door, i will come in and have dinner with Him. Do you want to know Him? Have dinner with Him, open up your heart for Him, He is ready to know You but where are you?

You need to take step , God doesn’t force you because He created you with a free-will. He does NOT want bad and ugly things for you, He is for you. Yes sometimes we need to turn back to His arms , He will give us some signs . He is your Father , Your heavenly Father, You are an apple in His eyes. Do not let your past , present and future stop you to know Him.

The most amazing thing you can possibly do is ‘to know Him’.

God is ready .

Wanna be freed ? know Him

Wanna be healed? know Him

I’d like to offer this song of mine to all of you:

I wanna know you

I long to see you

Jesus(2)

Show me your glory

Show me your mercy

Love .. Joy..Patience .. will be mine

Jesus(2)

I wanna be like you- Open my eyes

I wanna be YOU- open my heart.

Create a Goal

Today was a run day for me. I took a challenge and went to run outside.

I did not set a goal from the first but when I was about 2 KM , I slowly slowly think about I can do more. I went 3 Kilometres and I said to myself , ‘ I can do more ‘ .

Saturday run , was full of fun and expectation. 3 and half kilometre I felt my leg are so heavy and I can not move it , It was like you are carrying the 10 kilo of weight each leg. My heart was coming out and beating for 150 beats a minute( I guess so ).  But I promised to myself this would be the last lap , I am going to finish it at 4 KM.

Even I did not set a goal for a first time, but I took the challenge and have a little taste about my self . I did not run for about 8 to 9 month ( maybe more). But later one I found my goal and then create one.

Here look at my end result :

img_1455

I ran 24 minutes  without stop , about 4 kilometres . This is a really good outcome for the first day.

Now on, I create a goal for next week to beat my 4 km . I set the goal not high and not very low . I set it to 5 KM.

This is reminded me to encourage you today. Even you see there is no goal. make it , create it and see how God will bless you in that.

The goals directs you in a place that you never been before, Create one.

We read it in Proverbs 21 : 5

” Careful planning puts you ahead in the long run; ” .

If you have a long run , you need to plan it. It is like this , you went to Picnic but you did not plan it to where to go , what to bring?  It is similar.

Set a goal today and tell God to bless you in that. Set Goal to pray with your family , Set a goal to have fun with your loves ones and together make a better world for each other.

You plan it and God will establish it , Do not worry how establish it, God will do the rest for you , because he already know what plans are the best for you.

Jeremiah 29 : 11

There is a hope and future in Gods plan. when you commit your goal to Him. Hid eyes are watching you all the way when you are running. He cares you will be tired in the middle , He knows it.
Having motivation and goal is Gods desire.
If you want the windows of opportunity be opened for you, Do not neglect to create a goal.
Speak to God and set a goal for you life. Let Him flourish it for you. He gives grace to humbles .
And Above all, Do not worry about tomorrow, because todays worry is enough for today. And rest in God everyday.

Walk with God.

Why we are confuse around and looking for answers? Why we do not know which way to go?

And so many other questions that no one can answer you?

Have you ever asked a question that no body in this world can answer that? If you are that person , you are welcome here because I can not answer your question too.

I can not answer your question why people are suffering now, I can not answer any of your question that I can not! But I have one thing that hopefully answer your all questions. And will set you free as soon as you get it in your heart.

but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. (Romans 8 :5 )

You need to set your  mind in the Spirit and what the Spirit desires. When you live in accordance to this you will get your all answers.

There is power trusting in the Spirit of God.

When you set your mind and heart with the Spirit, everything else will not be really matter. What I mean by that? When Christ is in you , You have already what you need. Let not your mind be led by the flesh.

You can not please God and the world together.

When your mind led by the Spirit you have life and peace. Do not trust your flesh. Trust in Him. Be in realm of God that you may please God and get abundantly blessings.

I know , There is always something, someone to blame it for.

You made by the Spirit.

sand-465724_1280

You are not belong to flesh instead to the Spirit. You praise Him in the Spirit , You see Him in the Spirit. So why are you trying to find your answers and peace and joy in the flesh?

I love you, And that is why I am writing to you, because this is my mission to show you the love of God which is in the Spirit , not flesh. If I was doing what I am doing now in flesh I could not keep it up. I am writing because telling you that Jesus Loves you and He cares for you. You can not see Him , But He can see you, that what the Faith means, that what the Hope means till one day you will see Him face to face, but for now you have to think , act and be in the Spirit.

You are the friend of God when you set your mind in the Spirit( be believing). You are light. You are becoming like Him.

You are found, You are loved , You are healed and You are free…

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8 : 39 ).

Do not let anyone , anyone ..take your Hope in Him. He is coming soon.

Oh my Jesus , Bless whoever is reading this now and show them your love and mercy . Father pour out your spirit over them and over the family and household. In Jesus Name

Love on the way!

It is up to you. It is all to you not others . May others push you away but finally you are going to make the final decision.  However you are not alone anymore. His Spirit lead you home. Guide you to a new home. What decision are you making today?

But today I am going to tell you WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISION EVERY HUMAN CAN MAKE.

I have decided . I have already accepted. We read this in :

JOHN 3 : 16

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

There is a lot decision you can make. But to be honest this is the best decision you gonna make: surrender your life to Jesus. You know why? because you will earn the eternal life. you will earn His love, you will earn the real peace…

There is no such fake things in Him, There is no such things with empty promises. I love this . I love that he loved us first. wow wow wow .

“You are my Lord, because You have no need of my goodness.”
Augustine of Hippo, Confessions   

He has no need our goodness but we need his loving passion love everyday.

God already submitted his love to us through His son Jesus Christ . This is not a religion thing , this blog is not a religion blog at all. It is all about His love and mercy. He died for you and me. That’s why I am here to write this good news of His love to you. we all in our journey , we may make mistakes but his loving kindness cover us. He came to heal you, be with you.

love on the way

“I look forward, not to what lies ahead of me in this life and will surely pass away, but to my eternal goal. I am intent upon this one purpose, not distracted by other aims, and with this goal in view I press on, eager for the prize, God’s heavenly summons. Then I shall listen to the sound of Your praises and gaze at Your beauty ever present, never future, never past. But now my years are but sighs. You, O Lord, are my only solace. You, my Father, are eternal. But I am divided between time gone by and time to come, and its course is a mystery to me. My thoughts, the intimate life of my soul, are torn this way and that in the havoc of change. And so it will be until I am purified and melted by the fire of Your love and fused into one with You.”
Augustine of Hippo, Confessions 

If God leading your heart then he is leading your life. Love is on the way we decide to choose it.

For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Romans 10 : 13

Who ?

Everyone .

what?

Eternal life.

When?

God knows.

Choose love today. Choose Him.

fix your eyes on Jesus

Although , confused and shocked. Although we do not know which way to go and looking for an open door, it seems everything is mess up BUT fix your eyes to HIM. We do not trust any human , we do not have confidence to the things or anything you see and is tangible in this world. We believe in invisible God so why are we going to believe in visible things?

He made the thing on this world for us . He created things in Heaven and Earth. He trusted in you that you govern the things. He breathed a new fresh spirit that you can have wisdom in everything. Do not let anyone judge you by what you’ve done or you are doing!

Do you want your prospective change over the things? Fix your eyes on Him.  So you may ask question how I fix my eyes when seems the storms are so big for me. I give you one example from bible.

You will change if you change inside and becoming like Him.

Presentation1

Let’s go together open the book of Colossians chapter 1 from verse 15 to 22.(Colossians 1 :15-22)

If you really believe in Him , you have to believe what Jesus says about Himself in scripture. We know that the Holy Spirit is the author of the bible through his people he has done his plan .

The situation of the need of the Holy and faithful brothers and sisters in Christ at Colosse. You and me are in the same situation now, although we may faithful in everything but still we are in so much trouble forgot to fix our eyes in Him. But good news is here we overcome the world already .

Paul wrote to us too, He brought beautifully an image of Christ for us and said that related to centre of our faith. He said to our normal language : ” Hey , I know you are in trouble , but do you know by Christ all things were created, the things you see now and the things you can not see now ” He continues and reveals a good declaration that ” You see the powers now , you see the authorities now , oh my friend all things were created BY HIM and FOR HIM.

Did you just realise that? BY HIM and FOR HIM. Potentially everything. Paul remind us and encourage us that ” CHRIST IS BEFORE ALL THINGS ” . He is gone the way before you and prepare it for you, He is gone and prepared a table for you. Do you believe in that?  Believe it and become it. This means fixing our eyes on Him when the storms comes. declare that ” My Jesus is before all things , My Jesus know the way , I just trust in Him, He went the way ”

After your declaration and becoming like Him , now God’s spirit dwell in you( although you receive in your salvation , you release it now) in whatever you do, because you are in full control of the Holy Spirit. Then you smile in trouble , then you are in peace in the storms , because you became like Him. Because God’s fullness dwell in Christ now you have the fullness of God.

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.(Colossians 1:15)

Let the invisible God – form your heart and give you strength to move for

That’s what we made for

We made for life. We made to try . We made to live a life of legacy. How can it be? Just give it ago. I know sometimes its hard , I know sometime seems its impossible, but it is not! Not at all. People call it to be ‘ smart ‘ you do not need to be smart to have Joy! Do you?

May your smart philosophy mind get you comfort things.  Oh my dear friend late or soon you know you can not buy ‘ JOY ‘ .  But there is HOPE. There is LOVE , that can take you to a new life. a life of Faith. God loves you.

“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9 : 8

He is able to make you life fresh. He is able to take away your pain. He is able to restoration your relationship . He is able to give you understanding and wisdom. He is able to give you a new start. He will abound you with His grace and mercy . You are lovely and awesome.

How sweet is to be His friend. He will provide your all need at all times. Your times is in His hands. This is His promise to make you new. The Holy Spirit is within you. If you just allow Him to release inside of you.

 

IMG_0906
Life is beautiful. You made to be His.

 

The good thing of seasons , are ,  they come and they go. So do not worry about anything . I meant everything. God is able. If we confess and put His will first  , we start to see the things differently.

That’s what we made for. To be HIS .For Life. For Freedom…

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5 : 1

Stand firm in your freedom. Stand firm in His presence in whatever you do. Are you a house-wife? Stand firm. Are you a business man? Stand firm. Are you a student ? stand firm. Are you a mum , dad , husband , wife , sister , brother ? stand firm and love your family.

That’s what we made for. T0 love one another deeply. To forgive each other humbly. To be patient in everything. Because you are adopted to be His children , you are chosen people. You are who God selected you to be HIS. Because He loved you first and died for you.

Lets start from now , to see different.

Part 2 Balak and Balaam

Recall from my early post about Balak and Balaam from Book of Numbers chapter 22.

As I promised I am going to part 2.

Click here for reading Part 1 Balak and Balaam.

As Balak was faced a huge number of Israelites. He was looking for a solution to defeat Israelites. He sent his princes to welcome God’s message from His prophet , Balaam.

When Balaam asked God for the answer , He already answered him in one message . God said : ” They are blessed”.

Balak-and-Balaam

Now , this part is about Balaam’s donkey, be with me and lets see what will happen.

Now Balaam several times went to presence of God about what to do. In our general language he says like this : God they are still coming and I know you answered me but they want a answer and they want me to come with them. And the Lord saw Balaam a half eye keen to go with them told Balaam at the end : Okay you can go with them but listen and do what I tell you to do.

On the road an angel of the Lord stood and stopped the Balaam’s donkey to go. But Balaam did not realize that the Lord stopped the donkey and was beating his donkey harshly. When his eyes was opened , God , still did not stop him not to go , God said what was told the last time.

We ask sometimes the things are not good for us or in the wisdom of God , we go in the presence of God and ask him , ask him ( as we know that thing not really a wise for me) and eventually God will say : okay if you want to go , go.

It is right to ask God everything we need or we want. But Listen and wait till God gives you a direction is even more wiser . If you do hurry the things God will stop you ( as this means he really cares about you) and this stopped may have long consequences for your life. But it does not mean you are out of God’s plan. His plan are great and awesome for you. As you read God stopped Balaam’s Donkey but He did not stop Him what he attended him to do. It means your circumstances do not define your plan in God.

God is God. You are You, created like Him.

Think about that, how Jesus will act in your scenario , How he will respond. Put your feet in Jesus’ shoes. and Walk like Him .

God opened Balaam’s donkey mouth and she began to speak. I believe if you are for Him , He will open the doors for you, He will do things that you can not even imagine. He will use and He will open the mouth of things or those to His plan for your life be established.

Today , God wants to open the many donkey’s mouth to glorify Him in any area of your life. God wants to change around your situation . He wants to make you whole again. It is a matter of being humble. He says come if you are new in me , come if you be away from me awhile , come to me.

Father , I pray that your beautiful and powerful hands covers any person reading this right now. I pray father bless them, direct them to your way, love them again Lord as they are loved and beautiful in You. nothing is impossible those have trust in You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen

Please follow my blog or share this blog to those they are really thirsty to be encouraged in their Faith. We all having a journey.

 

Obey and take the land.

“ The Lord your God Himself will fight for you” these are the words Moses was saying to Israel.  In chapter 3 of Deuteronomy Moses pour out his heart and it was a long time to wait and see the promised land which God was told to Him. He was crying and saying to God  : “ Oh Sovereign Lord , you have begun to show to your servant your greatness and your strong hand ..” Moses saw the greatness of God , He saw how God awesomely rescued His people. And Here he is and trying to tell God , Oh Lord please let me go in the promised land.  He seems realised that God is not side of sin and not letting Him go into promised land but He appointed Joshua to go in.

Obedience is not a process of do something right rather do what is right in the eyes of God.  As I am reading Deuteronomy chapter 4 , these words was highlighted for me .

 

“..I am about to teach you, Follow them so that you may live and may go in and take possession of the land that the Lord, the God of your father is giving you. “ ( Deuteronomy 4 : 1)

God is about to teach you, He wants to give you a new thing that you have never experienced. Himself, teach you his law and decrees. What you need to do. Follow them carefully and that you may live. So then you may go in the land and take the possession.

God wants to give you a new land. If you only be obedient to Him. Only be careful and watch yourselves closely so learn and do what He says.  Moses said to people , Observe what the word of God says. And get the wisdom and understanding of it.

IMG_0552

Let the word of God build you up, every day , every moment. Let not fall down on your mouth . and let it be your eyes and feet every step you take. Declare it in your life and obey it. When you obey it , you are doer too. God will show you the land , this is you take the possession.

He is your God , You are His Child.  Obey your father.

So run for the prize that in Christ Jesus for you. You know , you will have troubles in this world. You know , But because He lives in You , you can face tomorrow . As you obeying Him everyday , As your chain are gone in Him . You are living in Heaven right now with Him until he is coming back soon.

Philippians 4 : 4

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.

Is anything in your life stopping to obey Him. Is anything in your life stopping to rejoice in Him. Put away all your worries and obey Him and take the land that God will show you.

The Kingdom of God

“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6 : 33

What is the kingdom of God? It is about the spiritual kingdom of heaven over our life. You submit your life to God’s authority. You obey His command and everything you do glorify Him . His kingdom is your kingdom. You do a spiritual fight . Daniel said that “the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed” Daniel 2: 44.

Now  the kingdom of God is within you. Whom Christ lifted it by the power of the Holy Spirit. His Kingdom is imperishableF. If you are looking for a stable and forever peace kingdom , so welcome to God’s kingdom. Seek His righteousness then everything will be added to you. This is not your fight , this is His.

kingdom

The scripture obviously says “ seek the kingdom of God” or “ seek the kingdom of Heaven”. It meant that is not the kingdom of this earth , or another physical planet . Jesus is saying that seek the unseen God and His authority . Seek His face even you can not see it.  Normally repentance would be up in this situation when you seek his ways you repent and turn of your sinful nature and back to God. The salvation will be substituted in this situation.

Paul also says in his letter to the church in Corinth “I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.” 1 Corinthians 15: 50.

To this very end the natural desires comes second and the supernatural desires comes first .

Paul continues with this that “Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed” .vastly we see the kingdom of God in the old Testament . The kingdom of God is a changing process inside out. It is not something you can touch but in a way is present and you can feel it within you.

The church of Christ can help you to find a way to reach the kingdom of God but all depends on you and your decision. The kingdom of God is not pushy , it is a soft and powerful home that brings the heaven inside of you. But , wait , It does not mean when we lost our physical reality we will lose the kingdom of God. As I said it is a spiritual reality , it is a spiritual kingdom , it will never die. It will never be faded. You will be still alive. It is really important with this mortal body seek His kingdom. This is honourable. You are still on the earth with this body but you are covered with the kingdom of God, isn’t this awesome ?

I can write to you about the kingdom of God pages and pages. In this short article I want to encourage you that as a Christian seek first His kingdom , because your hope is not on earthly things rather on heavenly realm . Yes , when you sought His will than your earthly needs will be met.

unending Love

God calling you by name. He knows your name. He knows who you are. If you are wondered and confused around do not know what to do, do not worry, He is here for you. He is your Father and He won’t let  his children be afraid and alone.

Do you know he loved you before the creation of the world. His unending love will never be ended. He came for you, For broken hearted , for poor in the spirit , for everyone who call upon on His name … But it seems His GRACE covers everyone.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3: 16

free_space_galaxy_texture_by_lyshastra-d77gh2y

Yes , He came for us. Not only he died for us he gave us eternal life.  I am not here to convince you , He Himself , the Holy Spirit will speak to you. I am here to remind you that you are loved . May you are going through a tough season , or may is everything alright and seems very peace around. In both scenarios , we need our God to be involved and shine on our way.

“Jesus thank you that you loved me , thank you that your unending love is for me . Father thank you your toughts are far better than any human.”

You do not need to do good to be in his love ( Although those good deeds are fantastic to do ) But he is already provided for you by the cross.

Oh my dear friend, 30 years being in this world showed me nothing is better than His love, Nothing in this world compares what he has done for us. You and God will be comleted , You need Him , I need Him  , we need Him , we can not do alone this journey .

You say how Dariush can I return to God?

I say , You do not need to do anything. Just come to him as you are

I say , accept Him as your lord and saviour and His unending love will be unleashed in your life

You say , I did Dariush

I say , repentance

I say , believe and have faith and acknowledge Him

Let the love of God unleash you truly , Let the love of God soften your heart , Let the love of God wash you completely , fill yourself with unending love of God everyday.

The Crown of Life.

If you are in trial right now do not be afraid. because that is a reason for you to become gold. Yes, for going to be pure gold you need to go in a process. It may be hard and harsh but , there is this believe that testing of your faith develops perseverance then you may be mature and complete.

I love to encourage you today that your trouble is a testimony for your victory for tomorrow. James wrote in his book that ” If any of you lacks wisdom , he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” James 1 : 5.

Please ask God to know and get wisdom and understanding from Him. How? By going into his presence and meditate on his word. But the think is here you must believe when you ask. Do not ask God when you have doubt. Do not ask God when you pre-judged the scenario. Ask like you believe it to happen.

IMG_0521

Some of the phrases a believer say when he ask:

*Tell to God I Know you are able to do all.

*I believe God you are in control of my situation and I Surrender all to you.

*I stay in your presence and you have to bless me now(God loves that enthusiastic in you, show it )

*Father I know you do the impossibles and Nothing is hard for you.

*Tell me Father what I need to do : 1- if you need to fix me , please do it by your Holy Spirit 2- If you are going to change me I am yours

*I believe and trust in you not on my own understanding, I love who you are

Encourage yourself in God, Humble yourself and cry out to Him and have this in mind and heart that He is close to you and long to know you more as you are seeking his face.  I promise to you if you grow in His love , you will have a deeper experience of God personally . Whenever the trials come you consider it a pure joy . joy in the Lord because you are His children , You are His and He is yours , Nothing . Absolutely nothing in this world would be able to separate you from His love.

The trials will open a new way to know that God really have a plan for you.

Lean on Him . Surrender to Him, Tell Him your troubles . He cares for you. Let your lips and heart confess His Name. Say it loud ,make a song and sing it for Him. Sing like never before to change you inside out and make your soul fresh in Him. Than you will walk on the fire and you wont be burned. Than you are in the storms and you will stay in His peace . Live by Grace of God everyday and know that God has a plan and purpose each single day only for you. He is the same yesterday , today and tomorrow.

“Blessed is the person who perseveres under trial, because when he stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”( James 1 : 12)

You trails are part of your life because the trails are the reasons to receive the life.

He loves to give you the crown of life. He loves you my dear friend. because that crown is made by his lovely hand only for you. No this is not every crown you think , this is specially made for you if you stood the test. He is faithful if He said so , he will give it to you. Do not be blown and tossed by the wind. You might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.

My prayer :

Father I pray for those , they are in great hardship and trials , Father give them strength to pass it . Father you know how hard it is , You know Father because you sent your only Son to rescue us . Father let them know you still in control even in their worst days. Love them , let them seek your face everyday and call upon on your name in their troubles. Thank you Jesus , Thank you God and thank you Holy Spirit that you are with them.

 

Grace be with you all

The World IS NOT my Shepherd !

I remember a season for the collecting mushrooms , me and my mum and brother and their friends went to collect the mushroom from a Jungle . We went early in the morning . Now I found my self into a huge trees and greens. I did not know the way I just followed them , suddenly in the middle of that huge trees I saw no one around me. I was lost! Because I did not follow the leaders.how do you feel those moment? looking for a way to get out? Sometimes, the world want to declare to you ‘ I am your shepherd ‘ But truly It is not.

Who is your shepherd? Who is in charge of your life and have a final word?

Today God will speak to you if you open your heart and let be HIM only your shepherd.

” The Lord is my shepherd  I shall not be in want ” Psalms 23.

We all know this verse , most of us memorise this verse and know the words perfectly. But as we are living in the world , the things around us affects our daily life and slowly slowly  we substituted this verse in this way :

‘ The World is my shepherd I have everything I need ‘. Is this true even? Yes it. we make our world have authority over our marriages , over our relationships , over our coming and going , literately we made ‘ the world’ our lord. But Who is your shepherd ? is your job? is your boss? is your money?

Image-1

Those are good questions to ask yourself. Everything you have is from him only.

“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” ( 1 Peter 1 : 3 )

His divine power all you need. His Authority all you need. He him self is your shepherd. God is your shepherd when He is in charge you won’t be I need. You are in peace , Because ‘ the World is not your leader ‘. He meets everything you need . The things, the people , the idea , the men… are NOT your shepherd . God Himself is yours. He guides you , comfort you , strengthen you and you lack nothing.

The men disappoint you but God will never.

He is the Lord of your life and you have everything you need. Those are in under his leadership they may never be separated of His unending love.

The World is not my shepherd But the LORD is.

The True Vine

“I am the true vine , and my father is the gardener.”  Jesus is the source of light and life. He is the vine and we are the branches. He is Himself is the root. And all branches are going to be fed by Him. You can not do the life without Him. He loves and cares about you. He said “ If you remain in me , you bear much fruit “ .  The fruit of joy , the fruit of prosperity , the fruit of peace will be yours.  Because you are connected to Him. You are not alone, because a branch can not do anything without the vine.

“ If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given to you”(John 15:7 NIV)

A few verses in chapter 15 : 7 , we incredibly see that Jesus says remain in me means love each other .

If you ‘ love each other’ you will remain in me. As He loved us and died for us and remain in Fathers love. So it is better to say that “ if we love each other and His words stay within us , we ask whatever we desire , it will be given to us “. Do you want be closed to God? Love each other. A genuine love that not for any men. Do you want to prosper ? Love your neighbours. Who is your neighbour? Your partner , your family , your co-worker , your mate , a stranger …

Your Joy is in loving others, This will start joy in Jesus.

“ My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.”(John 15 : 12)

This is a commend my friend , I beg you , this is a commend of God to love each other  deeply with all heart . forgive each other as He forgave you. You did not choose Him, He choose you to go out and love others. This is to the Father’s glory, in this way show you are His disciples. Yes , I know people hurts , People do the things so harshly , People are not the same , People instead of your good deed gives you bad. Oh my dear friend please do what your master told you to do. Are you going to listen to what people thinks about that if I do this or that? Your master commanded to you go out and preach the good news to everyone. What’s the good news? The gospel of Love. The love of Christ. If you really rooted in His love.  

Image-1

Let Jesus raise you up , If He chooses you , then , He provide and feed you with his heavenly food. He called us friends , we are his friends . Ask in His name , and you will receive whatever you wish when you are rooted in Him.

He is Your living water. He is Your provider . and know that you bear much fruit if you stay in what he says and listens to whisper of the Holy Spirit everyday in your life. I am sure God is waiting with open arms to see and hear from you.  Your joy will be complete when you truly bear much and much fruit in Him.

I pray God open the doors of opportunity in your life. I pray the true vine gives you new prospective to see the situation from his eyes. I pray as you trust in him , remain in Him by loving others and stay steadfast in his promises . I pray God heal you inside out and you will be blessed for others and glorify Father in heaven in Jesus Name.

God’s love = ∞

Most of us do not have patience enough in our life. We scare to face the mountain of the problems and looking for a way to scape and we all have some situations in our life somehow could not be bothered. Not only that it is like a trigger , if again something like that happened we are not there.  When Adam and Eve they sinned against the command of God, they could not stay and they fled from presence of God. They could not face their issue. because the disobedience was greater than forgiveness for them.

The reason we can not solve the problem because we are fleeing from them. God want us to be still see how wonderfully he acts.

Do not flee from your problems , stay and know there is a God. Have faith. Even you are feeling the pain of the issues breaking you down. Stay till end because victory has been given you already , do not you know that Jesus said ” I have overcome the world” . Be strong. God is faithful. Does not matter what test or trail comes on your way his unfailing love never be changed , never be shaken. His promises are greater than any problems you are facing, His presence is holy than any other presences. Meditate on his decrees. Cry at his feet, it is okay.

David says : ” My comfort in my suffering is this : Your promises preserves my life .”(Psalm 119:50)

2016-01-15 16.39.49

He knows our fainting hearts but we won the battle. What we do? seeking his face. We seek his face oh He is a good God , a loving Father, a king who served us. Let us face whatever  our obstacle is and in reality of His presence we live a life of legacy , a life of peace, a life of purpose and a life of hope.

Do not be scared what is or what would be your problem, Do not focus on it. Greater is His love. You have an eternal life in Him. Do not you know this life is only temporarily. Do not you know you are a citizen of heaven.

” My soul faint with longing for your salvation,

But

I have put my hope in your word.

My eyes fail, looking for your promise. ”

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. There is nothing in this world greater than His love. greater than his Love. I hate wrong path. I gain understanding from your precepts.

I Meditate on your precepts.

Love of God is infinite toward you regardless of your mistakes. God did not mistake , He created you in His image. Turn way your face from issue to his face , you will see better who you are in Him. When we realised that than:

God’s love = ∞

the issue = empty set –> {}

Nothing compares to his infinite love.

We are waiting for a better life in Him- An eternal life with Him. You are temple of His. You are carrying his image. So If you fix your eyes to Him,  than your problem and issue will be eliminated and see it is nothing at all. Our biggest sin is washed by blood of Christ.

Don’t you know you are not your own?For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. This land even is not yours. This problem is not yours so why you are bothering yourself. This house is not yours. This car , stuff on this earth are not yours. This money is not yours. But the love of your Father is Yours. His arms is yours. His hope and plan is yours. His kindness and greatness and peace is yours. His presence is yours. His home is yours.

the Everlasting Hope

When God calls us. It means He loves to free us in Christ. He wants to turn our situation from despair to delight, from misery to pleasure.

Since we have been dead in our sins. Lost in our lust. Without hope and life in this world. But now we our redeemed in Jesus,He freed us . Now we have eternal hope and life in Him.

He does- what he does! He breathes into our restless life with a wink changes everything. He does the same with the word of ‘impossible’. He touches and breathes into in and it becomes ‘Him-possible’.

” So Christ brings a new agreement from God to his people. He brings this agreement so that those who are called by God can have the blessings God promised, Blessings that last forever. This can happen only because Christ died to free people from sins committed against the commands of the first agreement.”(Hebrews 9:15)

You are chosen people. A holy nation. A home that built on the rock. You are entered to receive the promise of God. His promises never ends. They are sweet for your soul and body. So what promise is for you? – Eternal inheritance in Christ

Abram was 99 years old when the Lord appeared to him.

So old for us. So young for God.

God promised him to make Abram great. He changes his name to Abraham. He makes him extremely fruitful and gave him a child in that age.

So impossible for us. So possible for God.

God is whispering to each one of us today. If He can do for Abraham He can do it for us. Now we have a new covenant in Christ.

Impossibility is a gearwheel of Hope. Possibility is a wheel of Hope.

He is telling you:

” I am God almighty. Live in my presence and devout. I will establish my covenant between me and you..(Genesis 17 : 1)

Living in presence of God gives you eternal peace and freedom. A freedom with obeying . Your dady in heaven unbelievably love you. Even his punishes toward us is full of wisdom and lesson . Welcome to the land of promises.

My prayer is your receive the everlasting hope in Christ. Does not matter where you are and what is your situation. the new covenant . the great promises of God. the gift of Holy Spirit lead you in green pastures and show you awesomeness of his presence. Then you will stand firm in Him.
